Anyway, I thought I'd share some Thanksgiving Day tablescapes & a few glimpses of my start on Christmas decorating. I usually serve Thanksgiving dinner in the dining room, family-style. This year I'm changing it up. I got this idea from Kim at Savvy Southern Style, & she got it from someone else -- bless the many talents and wonderful ideas of bloggers! There will only be six of us celebrating today, so I decided to keep it more casual & sup in the breakfast room. I also have chosen to do a buffet (thanks, Kim). My island is pretty big, so I decorated the very center with lots of Fall/Thanksgiving decor & did the table the same way. I started clearing away all the Fallish decor yesterday, but kept out some key items. It's my last dose of all these things that I so adore & my way of showing respect to this wonderful day of Thanksgiving.
First, the island.
Snacks & drinks will be served from this side
The main dishes will go here. Because I placed all the decor items on a runner, I can always slide it back a bit if we need more space.
This wind-up snow globe plays "Turkey in the Straw."
I'm gonna miss all these colors.
The table is set with my Fiesta dishes sitting on chargers from Walmart last year.
I kept everything right in the center since we will have "young" ladies at the table, & I didn't want it to be difficult for them to maneuver around things.
The candles are not too tall so everyone can see everyone else!
A few glimpses of the beginning of Christmas decorating.
More to come about this later.
Always use this cute sugar/creamer set from Fiesta during this time of year.
Construction took place while the "Grands" were here!

Thank you so much for stopping by. I wish you a very warm and happy Thanksgiving Day with your family and friends.
